**Raymond**, Monday, June 20, 2011 at 6:21pmAmber, I'm not sure if my solution is correct but I will take a stab at it.

Your problem was:

2/5(5x-3)-1/3(12x-5)

2x-6/5-4x+5/3

-2x-18/15+25/15

-2x+7/15

**Raymond**, Monday, June 20, 2011 at 6:39pmYou made a mistake bobpursley in solving Amber's problem.

6/5 does NOT equal 6/15! 6/5=18/15 Therefore your calculation in line 2 of your solution is incorrect!

It SHOULD read:

-2x+1/15(-18+25)

-2x+7/15
